lyrics

GLINT

I drew you my demon with his skin of veins
symmetrical and delicately arranged
He’s a map of a perfect Earth
His mouth is a hole, his eyes are holes
He’s got needle teeth and his lips are all swole
He’s a map of a perfect Earth

Hang him up on your lime green wall
next to the Virgin Mary and a wolf-fur stole
and a painting of us, for what it’s worth
Next to the kingfisher caught in a dreamcatcher’s web
and the spider who hasn’t caught anything yet
and a painting of us, for what it’s worth

I’ll drive you down in a lightning storm
I’ll drive you down by the glint of your horns

I’ll drill myself deeper into the corner of this room
my fortress of cat piss and black mold and doom
while the world outside is glistening
The animals will crash against and shit in their cages
the day that I let them out and learn to feel my age
Yeah, the world outside will be glistening

I’ll force myself out onto the young and flowered Earth
to capture the lover that I’ve chased since my birth
the lover I’m to die for
I’ll call her Katrina or Krystal or George,
He who sleeps in the gutter and walks on all fours
the lover I’m to die for

I’ll drive you down in a lightning storm
I’ll drive you down by the glint of your horns

A broken old man and his dessicated whore
she’ll cough up tar while we fuck on the floor
She sings just like a bird
My skin will go clear, my teeth will turn yellow
I’ll call out your name in an explosion of spittle
Yeah I sing just like a bird
And one day I will call you up before the final battle
you’ll clutch the receiver as I shake my death rattle
and you’ll know who had the last word

about

Roselit Bone Portland, Oregon

“’Blister Steel’ is a runaway success … an unnerving set of booze-soaked, blood-curdling hellfire hymns that sound like very few other bands anywhere”
—The Portland Mercury

“Like Marty Robbins meets The Cramps, or a Goblin sountrack to a spaghetti western, ranchero fantasy meets greased up country in a magical reality.”
—American Standard Time
